  • Cover Band seeking Skilled/Experienced Bass Player Seeking a skilled advanced-level bass player who likes playing covers and is genuinely drawn to (and likes the challenge of) learning parts as exactly (as possible) from the original recordings of the songs. An openness to varied material is also a quality we are looking for, as is a generally positive cooperative, team player attitude. It’s a given that the right player will have very solid & agile rhythm skills & technique, uses a metronome as part of their home practice, and able to work with click tracks if needed. Ability to ‘slap’ and ‘pop’ would also be great, and ability to sing backup vocals is a really nice to have. Also very desirable if you’re open to using bass pedals or playing bass on keys in a few tunes as well. The band is in early stages but already looks to become one of Ottawa’s best bands with great, solid, experienced players and gigging probably 2/3 times a month (clubs, corporate events, weddings, fairs etc.).
